 THE WEATHERED BARN WAS CREATED IN 2008 AS A CONCEPT STORE THAT FEATURES AN ECLECTIC MIX OF ARTISANAL GOODS AND HOME ACCESSORIES.  A BACKGROUND IN FINE ART AND INTERIOR DESIGN, OWNER RENA WILHELM CREATED A SPACE FOR ALL OF HER FAVORITE THINGS & A WAY TO SHARE IT WITH OTHERS.  WITH ROOTS THAT STARTED IN THE ARTISAN HAMLET OF SUGAR LOAF NEW YORK, THE BOUTIQUE IS CURRENTLY LOCATED

IN THE CENTER OF THE HISTORICAL VILLAGE OF GREENPORT;

ON LONG ISLAND'S PICTURESQUE NORTH FORK.

SOME PEOPLE ARE SURPRISED TO HEAR HOW WELL JASON & RENA WILHELM WORK TOGETHER, BUT THEY WOULDN'T HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY.  RARELY SEEN APART, THEY'RE ALWAYS CHALLENGING & LEARNING FROM EACH OTHER BRINGING THEIR OWN SET OF SKILLS TO THE BUSINESS. RENA'S EXPERIENCE INCLUDES FINE ART, INTERIOR DESIGN, RETAIL & VISUAL MERCHANDISING WHILE MOST OF JASON'S CAREER PATH WAS SPENT IN THE CARPENTRY TRADE AND LATER IN ANTIQUE FURNITURE RESTORATION.

IN THE END, IT IS A BALANCE OF PERSONALITIES & SKILL ALONG WITH LOTS OF LAUGHTER AND THE PROMISE TO KEEP LIFE SIMPLE THAT MAKES THEM SUCCESSFUL IN LOVE, FRIENDSHIP & BUSINESS.

THE ARTISAN COMMUNITY

RENA IS ABSOLUTELY PASSIONATE ABOUT SUPPORTING OTHER ARTISANS AND WORKING WITH THEM TO TAILOR THEIR CRAFT TO COORDINATE WITH THE WEATHERED BARN AESTHETIC. THE SHOP HOUSES OVER 10 INDIVIDUAL ARTISANS BESIDES HER OWN WORK AND SHE CONTINUES TO BUILD & EXPAND A PLATFORM FOR CREATIVE PEOPLE TO FLOURISH WITHIN THE COMMUNITY.
